The musician and TV presenter, who bizarrely had to save her youngest Hero from choking six years ago, said: “My daughter (the other one this time) choked on holiday and I only knew what to do because I’ve done a first aid course.

“Please parents, arm and educate yourselves. It happened so quickly. 5 mins later it was as if nothing had happened.

“I’ve just booked another refresher course.”

Myleene’s friend, former All Saints star Nicole Appleton, was quick to respond, saying: “That must have been sooo scary!!”

Writing back, Myleene added: “Scary how quickly she started eating the rest of her meal again! But yeah, horrible. X”

Myleene, whose mum is a nurse, initially did a first aid course when she was pregnant with Ava.

Then five years later, her youngest daughter Hero began choking on a small plastic star and she had to call on her skills.

Recalling the scary incident in a previous interview, Myleene told the Daily Mail: “It was a week before her first birthday.

“She wasn’t quite walking at that stage and suddenly I became aware she was half-crawling, half-staggering over to me.

‘She’d gone really, really pale and there was a bit of blood coming out of her mouth.”

Myleene added: “I felt sick and every part of my body ran cold. But from somewhere, what I’d learned five years before kicked in.”
